  • TL;DR: This is THE place to go for learning about and purchasing your Turkish rug. Everyone is extremely kind, patient, and professional—you won’t regret it. I had the best last day in Cappadocia, all thanks to Mustafa, Ali, and Sebo at @sultan_carpets. I happened to wander into their shop in search of a Turkish towel, but then curiosity (and my dream of owning a Turkish rug) took over. I thought I might get something small I could fit in my suitcase. But as Mustafa patiently (and quite graciously) taught me about the different types of rugs and I answered my questions, I realized I might want something bigger. Mustafa pulled out so many options for me to see and explained details about each one. At no point did I ever feel pressured to make a choice or just buy one. I was given Apple tea while I debated over which one to get. Mustafa helped me narrow down to my pick and arranged to have my rug shipped back to the States. Also, Ali, who purchases all of the inventory, gave me the history of my chosen rug and I received a certificate of authenticity. And then when I asked to take a few photos of one of their rooms (after purchasing this rug that I LOVE), with the intention of taking a few room shots and selfies, I ended up getting a mini photo shoot with Sebo! He is a great photographer and he used my DSLR to take amazing photos of me in their beautiful (and very IG-worthy) open air showroom upstairs. I am extremely awkward in front of the camera, but somehow he made me look amazing. *I will note, that if you aren’t purchasing a rug, there is a fee to take photos, but it is completely understandable because it’s a business for selling rugs—not to be an IG background studio. So please be respectful when you visit, because this is a wonderful business.
